I didn't mean to compare PEP 580 to that specific issue, it was just an 
example. Even if issue26110 is small, the total complexity added by many 
incremental changes can still be big.

Just to make sure I understand you: your point is that it's 
automatically more complicated because it's an API instead of an 
internal change?
